St. George’s Day Celebration @ Marriott Hotel (3 of 4 Galleries)
Thanks to a great group of guests from the international community in Hungary over HUF 1.9 million was raised to support worthy charities on Saturday, 22 April, from 6pm until early the next morning in Marriott's magnificent 'Grand Budapest Ballroom'.
"It was an honour and a pleasure to attend the second St George’s Day celebration organised by XpatLoop. As well as celebrating England’s patron saint, it also raised money in support of UNICEF Hungary for a range of good causes. As such I was proud to be a part of this event, which is becoming a fixture in Budapest’s social calendar" - HM Ambassador Paul Fox.
Local reps from UNICEF and from 'Food Bank Aid for Ukrainian Conflict Refugees in Budapest' were in attendance to talk about the good causes and collect the funds raised at this celebration of England's Patron Saint - who is also commemorated by many countries around the world including Hungary.
Presented by XpatLoop.com the party featured an abundance of live English music, refreshments and prizes. The organisers are grateful to everyone involved in another successful mega-event, especially the sponsors, event supporters, F&B providers, many musicians and support crew.
